Cannot log onto laptop when off domain.

We have one laptop that does not allow the user to log on when it is OFF the domain.    Windows 10 1709.   Tried several different cached logins and only the local admin logins will work.
Made sure the wireless was off.  Removed the Lenovo fingerprint utility (which we've seen issues with). Deleted all Windows cached creds and logged back onto domain when connected via ethernet.  Take laptop off network, log off and get message below.

We cannot sign you in with this credential because your domain isn't available.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Make sure when connected to the domain that it's actually creating the user profiles and not just temp profile folders. You can always try creating a local login if this PC is going to be off the domain a lot.

"Deleted all Windows cached creds"

Did you do this via the Security Options then restart the computer? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N711aplt0RQ

Aside from all the good advice here on login attempts, since it is one laptop, do a Windows 10 Repair Install and Keep Everything. This may reset the needed components.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything

We're reinstalling W10 at this point.

That should have the same outcome as a Repair Install.

Ok, so my tech looked at the cache creds again and it's set to Zero.  When we changed it back to 10, we were able to log in.   Wish he had done this before doing the repair!

The machine has cached credentials set to zero.   By increasing it, it allowed the user to log on off the domain.  Thanks!
